Will is a young writer living in the big city, barely scraping by on his copywriter’s salary. When he meets Hope, his beautiful and enigmatic new neighbor, he is certain he has found the inspiration and the validation he’s been seeking. But as he struggles to find his way, Will learns he must reconcile his youthful vision of life with the complexities of the real world to find true fulfillment. Featuring an original score of rap music with a classical twist, But Not For Me is a love song to music, hip-hop, idealism, and human connection.
